I Fight the Battle Everyday

    I am not sure what has happened here in Tennessee (maybe all the rain??) but there seems to be an explosion of baby squirrels everywhere!  I live in a wooded area, the the little guys are everywhere this summer.  Once I pulled into my driveway and there were TEN of them sitting there grinning at me.  Of course this has deepened my conviction to protect my bird feeders, and sent me and my husband on a quest to find the perfect solution.  We succumbed to all sorts of marketing and bought feeder after feeder, trying to keep the little snots out of the the sunflower seeds… we even tried good ole Tennessee country wisdom, and let me tell you tying s sock filled with moth balls onto your gazebo wall is NOT effective:)  But you will be excited to know that we finally came up with a solution– and it works!   It’s the “Yankee Flipper” and when a squirrel touches the bottom of it, it spins and flips them off.  There are really funny videos of this if you Google Yankee Flipper– but most of all it keeps those little buggers at bay!  A win for the home team!
